Town tennis club in tournament action

Have your say

GRANTHAM Tennis Club competed in several tournaments across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire during the festive period.

In the Mini Orange category (9&under), Willoughby Jago took part in the county tour event held at West Bridgford. Willoughby managed a runner up position in his round robin group and therefore took part in the Plate competition. After playing some very good tennis, the Grantham player managed to win the Plate competition.

Mini Green (10&under) players Joe Patton, Lewis Picker and Tom Horton competed in David Lloyd Burton Waters county tour event. The three Grantham players were part of an eight-person strong event. Tom Horton finished a respectable fifth, while Lewis Picker managed to win his play-off for third place. Joe Patton wen5t one step further by making the final in which he faced a determined Jake Holt who edged the match after some smart tennis by both players.

Also in a Mini Green county tour event, held a few days later at Boston. Joe Patton and Lewis Picker represented Grantham Tennis Club. Lewis took his good form into the Boston event by making the play-off for third once again, but he narrowly missed out to William Bero. Joe also regained his final position of a couple days previous, but managed to win the event, beating Victoria Beardsley.
